Her early years were spent in Proctor, then later in Randolph, VT., where she helped with the family farm. Freda graduated from Randolph High School. During World War II, she did her patriotic duty by being one of thousands of "Rosie the Riveter" doing her part at Winchester Repeating Arms, New Haven, Conn.
